New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Sunday registered a fresh FIR in connection with its ongoing probe into the Vyapam scam in Madhya Pradesh.

The First Information Report (FIR) was registered against 38 people related to allegations of illegalities committed in the Madhya Pradesh Junior Food Supplies Officer and Inspector vis-a-vis weights and measurements recruitment examination conducted by Vyapam in 2012.

The Central Bureau Of Investigation (CBI) registered the FIR under charges of cheating, criminal conspiracy, IT Act, Prevention of Corruption Act and the Madhya Pradesh Recognised Examination Act.

“The then controller of examinations (Vyapam) Pankaj Trivedi, then OSD to the minister for technical education Om Prakash Shukla, then Raj Bhavan officer on special duty (OSD) Dhanraj Yadav and then system analyst Nitin Mohindra have been named in the FIR,” said a CBI official.

The CBI earlier registered 14 FIRs and launched seven preliminary inquiries into the Vyavsayik Pariksha Mandal (Vyapam) scam.

The Supreme Court on July 9 handed over the Vyapam cases to the central agency for investigation.

More than 40 people linked with the scam have died under mysterious circumstances.
